Shade John Akinsete is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, Faculty of Public Health, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. As an alumnus, she is giving back to this prestigious institution where she earned her BSc and MSc degrees. From 2002 to 2007, she was a Commonwealth Scholar at the University of Reading, United Kingdom, where she earned a PhD degree. Dr Akinsete proceeded to the Lincoln University of Missouri, USA to serve in the capacity of a postdoctoral fellow from 2007 to 2009, where she conducted research on soil carbon fractions and greenhouse gas fluxes from different land uses. Her research interests centre on measuring carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions as well as the assessment and monitoring of contaminants (heavy metals and total hydrocarbons) in urban and peri-urban soils. Furthermore, she was a CIRCLE fellow from January to December 2016 at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Nairobi, Kenya (Host institute). Her CIRCLE research focused on soil carbon and greenhouse gas fluxes quantification and monitoring in sub-Saharan Africa: a case study of southwestern Nigeria. She has continued to author and co-author research publications.
